Default Punch 1840 1

In response, the "Punch" factory was founded in 1840, by Don Manuel López, owner of J. Valle y Cia, the British market at that time had it among their priorities, at that time the humorous magazine "Punch" was fashionable. whose main character was "Mr. Punch" with tobacco in hand and they decided to put that image in the views of the packages, British smokers liked these cigars because the layers tend to be very careful reddish brown. You will see an image of a view from 1850 among two others from later times. I'll be back with the 2nd part.

Thanks for the info. I am surprised to see the Oms photo. By 44 I thought that he was already very ill and unable to play. Oms is also one of my favorite players, a forgotten great. Below is one of my favorite photos. Oms signing his contract and getting his check from Gonzalez.

Since you brought up Oms, I have another question for you. Below is a photo that I think may have been from a benefit game for Oms after his death. The reason that I think this is that the player in the Bottom left is identified on the reverse as Oms brother Tito. While I know that Tito and one other brother played on Sugar Mill teams with Alejandro when they were young, I have never seen another image of Tito and he looks well past his playing days.

Default 3 hermanos Oms

Jason, I will tell you that a grandson of Tito Oms I have known him for years and every so often he comes to my house, the last time was about 6 months ago, he has told me that the Oms have family ties with the Champion Mesa family, Now I send you a photo that the 3 Oms brothers are, the photo is not in good condition, but I think you can realize who the three are, if you have questions ask me, greetings.

Default Punch 1840 2

Continuous, Manuel López was right to set his eyes on the English market, in 1559, a theatrical work called Cuban Ebullition was performed in London, the artists released the smoke with pressure and intermittently, in 1598 the German traveler P. Hentzener in his book "Memories of travel" writes that the English wherever they are smoke La Hierva Nicoteana, in 1620 Bernabe Rich, calculates the volume of sale in London that is half a million pounds that comes in each year. In the early years of the 20th century, several companies, including "American Tobacco" and several others, entered Cuba and bought 291 brands of tobacco and 85 cigarettes. In 1910, "Los Independientes" emerged, who were the ones who did not sell their factories. they were "Punch". Now you will see several images of this brand in boxes and rings.

Default Punch 1840 3

When Sir Winston Churchill visited Havana, he visited the "Punch" factory on Monte y Zulueta streets, and had them prepare some cigars with chosen size, thickness, color and layers, and he named them "Churchill" vitolas. To be part of the brand's vitolario, as far as I know in the late 1990s, this vitola was still sold for export. The ring that you will see is from King GeorgeV, which was made by the factory in 1910, for his coronation, it is made with thin sheets of Gold, in lithographic stone, it coincides in the year of the Cigar cards with the players and you will see a view of tobacco printed in silver for the 25 years of his reign, made especially for the Shop East Orange in NJ with this I conclude the questions they asked me.
